Karun Chandhok, who is one of the brilliant Indian sportspersons and a racing driver who last competed in Formula E, is in news for completely unrelated reasons. Before we tell you what’s Chandhok making news for of late, we’d like to bring to your notice your mother’s messages. Yes, those panic-stricken messages, mostly in capital letters (for increased impact) that blink on your phone’s screen. “Beta khaana khaaya? Beta, ye kaise kapde pehene hai? Beta, thand lag jaaegi.” — are just some of the messages that make for the regular ones. Getting back to Chandhok, who is also a sports commentator with Channel 4 F1, recently got an earful (like all Indian kids) from his mom for wearing shorts on TV!
Not only did she put up a tweet to the Channel which tweeted a picture of Chandhok’s legs from the commentary box as the excitedly announced going on air shortly, but all the Indian racer’s mother Chitra Chandhok had her alarmed eyes at were his ‘ORANGUTAN LEGS’ — as she wrote on the micro-blogging site.
Channel 4 F1 tweeted “Karun takes a breather in the commentary box. We’re on air tomorrow but he and Ben still broadcast to partners around the world.” Check out their tweet here.

The 33-year-old’s evidently alarmed mother replied: “PLEASE DONT PUT MY SONS ORANGUTAN LEGS

An embarrased Karun had really nothing to say to his mother, except for an “Err…. Hi Mum!”
